Exchange 2003 Public Folder Restore BE 9.1 for Small Business Server 2003 Fails

I have been at this for a while... with no luck. A few weeks back the drive that held the OS on our SBS 2003 server failed and we lost Exchange. I've since reinstalled, recreated AD, named everything back the way it was and restored mail.

I haven't been able to restore a lousy Public Folder calendar we had that everyone seems to sorely miss. We otherwise had nothing in the Public Folder Store besides the default folders SBS 2003 creates, which no one was using.

I have BE 9.1 SP2 installed ...my DLT IV tape (made prior to the crash) catalogs just fine and shows the PF Store. I dismount the PF store prior to attempting the restore and pretty much choose the defaults in Backup Exec (no redirection). It takes about 30 minutes every time I attempt this... and every time I get the message "Corrupt data encountered". I followed the advice in Veritas tech note. #270504, but still get the following error, "0xa000feab - Corrupt data encountered".

I don't really think the error is accurate. I've seen this before with BackupExec... but, this time I'm stumped. It should just work. It's just a calendar... I really doubt there's any corruption. I've also tried the restore from 3 different tapes/backup jobs and get the same results every time.

Can anyone think of something I should be doing here? Would an Exchange Recovery Storage Group be necessary here? Veritas says no, but they've been completely useless to me where tech. support is concerned.
